Panthers take 2 from Oak Harbor / Baseball

The Snohomish High School baseball team swept a conference doubleheader from visiting Oak Harbor Friday, April 12.

A game between the teams schedule for Wednesday, and then Thursday, was rained out and added to the already scheduled game for Friday.

Oak Harbor takes on Stanwood (3-9, 4-10) for three 4 p.m. games this week. The Wildcats and Spartans meet in Oak Harbor on Tuesday and Friday, April 16 and 19, and in Stanwood Wednesday.
